My headaches have moved to the back of my head and I have found myself to be more depressed and I can't figure out why the hell I'm depressed in the first place. I am trying to stay positive about everything and keep my mind busy, but I can't get passed this depression. Has anyone else been experiencing similar things?
Lots of the MS depression is situational - I can't get a "grip" on it to conquer it because it keeps changing, not for the better.

well said wendi , not just this sentence but your whole post.
There is no pill that will give me what I'm looking for - to wake up in the morning and feel strong and capable of handling whatever the day throws at me.

I amd trying to do a little bit more exercise to try to keep my weight down. I quite smoking when I was pregnant with my last baby (late last year) and I put on a lot of pounds that wasn't baby fat. I will keep that up and try a few other things as well.
The things I am trying to do more of as well is stay positive. I try not to think about my MS factor and I am thankful I don't have a disease that doesn't allow me to live a semi-normal life. Think Cancer or AIDS. Those people dont really have a lot to be happy about. I have my kids, my husband, and Fashion school to keep my mind occupied, also the army as well since I am still working for the Army right now. But again, thank you for all the encouraging words. I didn't think I would find a good MS community....but I must say I feel right at home here.
